Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bethesda's true-blood scare-'em-up is the headline act in PS4's horror show not just for the name attached to it, but for its ability to get under your skin and make you feel hunted, relying on your wits rather than your trigger finger." --OfficialPlaystationMagazine



"The Evil Within will be a title where one of the originators of the survival horror genre returns to give a master class in making players squirm in their seats."--Kotaku

If you're fans of The Evil Within, you'll be glad to know that this is a great companion artbook to the game.

This game is directed by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series. In some ways, this book does feel like a spin-off of Resident Evil.

The book's a 224 page hardcover. It's quite thick because the paper is thick, and the good low gloss type.

The concept art is fantastic. For the humans in their normal uninfected form, there's really nothing to shout about. But I'm seriously impressed by the 3D renders for the human characters. Yeah, you know that they are still 3D models but they look real good. The infected human form are more interesting.

Highlight of the book is of course the grotesque human and creature designs. There's plenty of blood stain, skin lesions, burns, mutation, exposed flesh, and more blood stains. Things like intestines falling out of an open stomach in this game looks pretty mild by comparison. In terms of the gore factor, it's close to Resident Evil. I wonder what it would be like if one day Shinji Mikami decides to create a Resident Evil and Evil Within crossover.

The creature and enemy designs are great. There's no shortage of ideas when it comes to designing scary enemies. All of them look great, and by great I mean gross. There's a good mix of 2D and 3D art. I'm not sure if it's because of the PS4, but the 3D rendered graphics for games nowadays are just getting better. The amount of detail for the artworks are incredible.

The textures of the skin, veins and meat mesh from the 3D monotone renders are amazing. I actually do not mind if this book shows only monotone renders. The designs are good regardless of whether they are in colour or not.

The book is amazing, love all of the different costumes for each of the character especially for Kimdall and The Keeper. I would gladly give this book a 5/5 however, I noticed one significant problem with my book, I have around 20 extra pages that are the exactly same as the previous 20 pages or so in my book. So I'm not sure if I lost some artwork or I have extra 20 pages. That kind of bugged me because the book itself is amazing with all of the cool artwork in different mediums etc. If I could get a new book that is 100% correct, I would gladly give this book 5 out of 5!

Character arts and environment arts are superb. I especially loved the undead arts. Every page is nicely filled with art. However the binding of the pages seemed as if it is going to fall off easily. The binds are visible as well unlike other art books that I owned. Would have given a 5/5 if the binding is good.

This is a nice artbook, but as others have commented, the binding is a little suspect. It's not terrible, so I only docked it half a star (which, unfortunately, became a whole one), as none of the pages are falling out or anything. But the binding is visible when the book is open, and I tend to read it kind of half-open, so as not to stress the binding further. That isn't an ideal way to read, especially for a book this large. However, the page stock is good and thick, and doesn't seem flimsy.

The contents are interesting--I especially like Ikumi Nakamura's whimsical commentary. Some of the renders are contained in the game itself as an extra, but there are many interesting concepts that never made it into the game. There is also slightly more background information on the characters, which probably should have been covered in the game itself!

If you're a big fan of the game, this is a great book, but it probably won't stand up to aggressive handling (and really, why would you need to do so?).

I enjoyed examining concept art and reading the thoughts behind Tango Gamework's The Evil Within video game. The amount of detail is great, but it's limited to a small paragraph or a couple sentences. I recommend it to any fan of the game.

I like it a lot, some of the art work here even resemble things from the Resident Evil series so it kinda makes sense why they had to scrap certain things but still really cool to see none the less.
